ASIS, organizer of the GSX 2020 tradeshow, recently announced that it is considering moving the event online because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In the statement, ASIS International President Godfried Hendriks and ASIS International CEO Peter J. O’Neil said a status update will be made by June 22:
"At this stage, we are evaluating our means of safely accommodating attendees at the Georgia World Congress Center in accordance with health and safety recommendations—and our means of potentially moving the event, in part or in full, to a virtual environment that offers the same high quality content, instructors, and dynamic interaction that you have come to expect from our in‐person GSX gatherings.
It is our plan at present to confirm whether GSX 2020 will take place live on or before 22 June. We believe this will provide our attendees and exhibitors with the notice they need to make arrangements for their participation. We will deliver an update on the status of GSX 2020 no later than 22 June. We, the ASIS International Global Board of Directors and HQ Team, appreciate your understanding as we make the decision that is right for our attendees, speakers, staff, exhibitors, and other stakeholders."
